Karen Frail

Owner

Having worked under the direction of Susan since 2012, Karen entered the role of owner in 2017 after gradually taking on larger duties in the operation of the business. Karen learned to crochet at age 10. This is “officially documented” inside of a well-kept summer journal she wrote in as a child during summer trips to visit an aunt and uncle in upstate New York. Karen didn’t pick up knitting skills until 17 years later while she was expecting her daughter’s arrival. When asked which craft she enjoys more — the answer is always both!
Karen thoroughly enjoys all aspects of the fiber arts, especially sharing that love with others. Teaching people to create with their hands and watching them have a sense of accomplishment is most rewarding.

About us

History of Yarnability

The shop was established in 2012 in Shepherdstown, WV under the ownership of Susan Wolcott (former owner of Y2Knit in Funkstown, MD). The shop spent two years on Duke Street until a purchase of the building required a relocation for the shop. Yarnability was relocated to Princess Street from 2014 to 2017. In March 2017, the shop changed ownership to Karen C. Frail and was relocated to Charles Town, WV. In July 2022, Yarnability expanded its physical size and relocated to Harpers Ferry, WV.

In its “third installment,” Yarnability has been in Shepherdstown, Charles Town, and now in Harpers Ferry. Although the storefront appears to have moved across multiple ZIP codes, each of these cities are all in Jefferson County, WV and within a 10-mile radius!

Terri Truitt

Terri loves to make almost anything. She knits, crochets, sews, and quilts. She is often known around Yarnability as the “bag lady”. You will find her custom bag creations at Yarnability under Handmade by Terri. When she isn’t working with fiber, Terri enjoys spending time with her family and going to listen to local musicians perform.

Susan Wolcott

Susan is the former owner of Yarnability and Y2Knit in Funkstown, MD. She is a veteran knitter and crocheter. You can find Susan in her garden when the weather is good and when we are lucky, at Yarnability!
